Mixed Media Morsels & more

Tips, Ideas, and Inspiration

Well, I made a tag… with a wish on it, LOL! I wanted to share how I used one of theΒ  wooden pieces I altered in my YouTube video for Mixed Media Morsels, Dessert #1.Β  Here’s how I created it: I cut a tag from card stock – it is approximately 3×5 inches. I covered it with a piece of a page from my “Composition Book of Unwasted Paint” and created the black and white border with Posca paint pens. Then I stamped some black dots on the background. I found some doodled flower stickers in my stash and adhered them, then stamped some tiny red flowers. I gave the flowers some bling centers and then adhered my wood embellishment with some double-sided tape. The back side is collaged with pieces of book text.




I really enjoyed creating this tag and I think I’d like to create a tag to showcase each of my Desserts this year, sharing each one here. At the end of the year, I’ll have a nice little tag book, bound with a metal ring at the top. Maybe you’d like to make one, too — that’s my wish!

See you next time,

    Hello Cat, I just “met you”. I like your soft easy way of speaking. The same goes for the art you make, it is light clean and feeling fresh. I am no artist. Started to fiddle with colour; this is how I got to meet you. πŸ™‚
    I am going to try and follow your wish, once a month does not sound too challenging to me. In the process I am certain this would have helped me to learn stuff.

      Thank you! I hope you will enjoy creating with me! πŸ™‚
